106 Hammered Dulcimer

The hammered dulcimer is epic.

The hammered dulcimer is to the harp what the electric guitar is to a harp. super fast notes, driving celtic melodies, I am surprised this instrument is not utilized more.

107 Erhu

Damn this is far down the list. I was beginning to think I was going to have to add it myself.

A best sound something like drums but better than it.

109 Fluba

It's a giant fugal horn

I love the fluba. it is a giant flugelhorn with the range of an F tuba, and 4 piston valves. It is an amazing instrument!

I'm only voing for this for the name - Himalayansalt

110 Lute

Lutes would have to be the best stringed instruments I've heard! Their unpopularity is astonishing

Why is this so far down? One of the best instruments in history

111 Balalaika

The Balalaika is the best instrument ever in my opinion! So many emotions can be expressed through just three strings. It seems to have been given a bad name because it is a Russian instrument. It is not seen enough in music other than Russian folk and classical. Unfortunately, it is an unappreciated instrument.

115 Guqin

Beautiful instrument. Amazing culture and history.

117 Zither

It sound out each note so perfectly and give ones who hear it a sudden remote feeling of each unique song, either a malevolently fast beat one or a clear slow show of beats.

118 Alto Horn

The alto horn is a beautiful instrument. It can play, a rich and deep melody, and the same goes with the harmony. It is very versatile, as it can play jazz, classical, marching music, whether in a solo, or an ensemble. I love the alto horn!

92, seriously! this is the best ever made with all of it's pipes and joints. why is this not number 1? it just plays such a rich melody and it's for anything. also, so simple it is so mellow and beautiful. VOTE FOR THIS!

It is my FAVOURITE INSTRUMENT OF ALL TIME.(the euphonium draw.) love the said of brass and this is your favourite.

Wonderful sound. Very loud. I like that it's higher than a tuba, but lower than a trumpet.

120 Jaw Harp

Gives a great western sound. I play the jaw harp along with the drums and harmonica. A simple instrument and very underrated.
